    Dr Lodovico Parmegiani’s 2017 ESHRE Presentation:

    Universal Warming Protocol for Human Reproductive Cells

    Dr Lodovico Parmegiani presents data that demonstrates you can use a universal warming protocol with slow frozen or vitrified embryos or oocytes, that differs from the media and method used for freezing. For example, warming Kitazato-vitrified blastocysts with SAGE media and vice versa.

    This optimizes costs, simplifies lab routines and allows embryo exchange between IVF centers. These findings were presented for the first time at the show, sparking further interest in our SAGE Vitrification Media.
